HUUB have launched a prescription version of their best-selling goggles for pool and open water swimming, the Altair.
A comfortable fit and the ability to see clearly in all given light conditions are the two most important factors for open water swimming.
HUUB, the Derby-based brand, created their top-of-the-range Altair goggles with these criteria in mind. Three interchangeable lenses are designed to give razor sharp vision regardless of light conditions.
HUUB have now added prescription swim lenses which fit that range-topping model, now allowing short-sighted swimmers to enjoy the same benefits.
The prescription set comes with additional separate left and right specific prescription lenses to suit most needs, including astigmatism up to 2.00 thanks to a method called sphere equivalency. It is available from -1.50 to -6.00 in increments of 0.5. and made from the highest grade poly-carbonate with anti-fog coating and U.V. protection on the smoke lens.
Deano Jackson, the Owner of HUUB, said: “We are delighted to be the first company to offer a great looking prescription swim goggle. Our prescription version of the Altair - our ultimate pool and open water swim goggle - means that swimmers who need glasses need no longer compromise on looks or function. They can have both.
The Altair Prescription Goggle and Lens Pack comes at the price of £69.99 and can be ordered online on HUUB’s website. A guide to prescription lenses is also available so customers can order without the fear of receiving the wrong lenses. Lenses can also be purchased separately (£12.49 each).
